Design Your Life

“Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma — which is living with the results of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of others’ opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.”

-Steve Jobs

Words like this used to both inspire and haunt me. I was inspired enough to make my life really nice: great apartment near Union Square in Manhattan; fun, creative job as Art Director with an amazing graphic design company, strong friendships, loving family, etc, etc…

Yet, I was haunted by those words encouraging me to “live each day as if it were your last.” When I was really honest with myself, was I doing that? No. I felt like a fraud telling people “anything is possible!” and then thinking, longingly of my “Someday’s” (like “someday I’ll travel the world and actually relax”).

Long story short, I finally made my Someday’s my Today’s. I took a leap and now live my dream life of traveling (in warm, beautiful places), focusing my energy on spirituality (like yoga and meditation), sharing delicious, healthy food with others, and I could go on…

The most common response I hear from people is “You’re so lucky!” or “I wish I could do that!” My automatic reply is “You can!”

And then the laundry list of reasons why you cannot comes spilling out. “Because the kids, the job, that errand, money is tight, etc. etc…”  I had those too. And I still do! I still have fears and thoughts that make me think this is not possible (even though I’m living proof that it is, right now.) AND I have support. I lean on others for coaching and help when my ego has me forget my Truth. As a result, I’ve had more moments than ever where I need to pinch myself, wondering “Is this really my life?” It’s too good not to share. So that’s what I’m doing now.

My coaching program is for you if you’re ready to break through your personal glass ceiling, your upper limit for happiness, to create the life that fulfills, fuels and inspires you. This is not for people who are good with “fine,” who want to argue for the okay-ness with how things are as-is. This is for those who are deeply grateful for what already is, yet feel there is always something more…more to grow, learn, experience, etc…for those who have lives that are already beautiful and enlivening, yet can see areas that fall short of expectations (and are willing and ready to honestly confront those areas).

This is for the fully alive. Not those who wonder “why me?” but those who think, earnestly, “why NOT me?!” If that’s you, let’s talk.
